Sends an AuthOnly transaction to the host.
public void AuthOnly();
Public Sub AuthOnly()
An Auth Only transaction is used to verify and reserve the cardholder's open-to-buy funds available at that time. This transaction is NOT added to the open batch. In order to settle (be paid) for this transaction, the merchant must run a Capture transaction using the original PNRef obtained during this Auth Only transaction. Only then will the transaction be added to the open batch. Typically any funds blocked with a Sale or Auth Only transaction are reserved for approximately seven (7) to ten (10) days. This may vary from issuer to issuer. Sample transactions follow.
AuthOnly transaction with Track 1 data:
component.Card = new GlobalCard("5499990123456781=15125025432198712345"); component.TransactionAmount = "1.00"; component.AuthOnly();
Manually keyed AuthOnly transaction:
component.Card = new GlobalCard("4444333322221111", 1, 2015); component.TransactionAmount = "1.00"; component.AuthOnly();
.NET Standard Notes
To call this method in an asynchronous manner call AuthOnlyAsync instead. When the method completes (or an error is encountered) the AuthOnlyCompleted event will fire.
